We think it’s a cool idea – no, essential, actually – to have a wall or two at home where you can put up bits of this ‘n that. Things that cannot possibly be left in a draw or that are just so lovely, you need to look at them every day.

This is our Editor Laureen Rossouw’s pinboard in her home office. Her wall attests to her love of getting and sending postcards, red as an accent colour, retro bits ‘n bobs, fashion, fabric, art and artists. “I don’t think much of my taste in jewellery,” says Laureen. “That’s my blind spot. But ask me about visualspictures and art; they talk to me.”
